Glenmorangie Dornoch – Tasting Notes

From the Glenmorangie distillery comes this lovely whisky called Dornoch. Was fortunate to have a taste of this one in the first #glenmorangielive twitter tasting a while back. Loved this expression, and this is what they can tell us about this expression.

In the far north of Scotland, beside the ancient Royal Burgh of Tain, lies the Glenmorangie Distillery. Established in 1843, the Distillery was named Glenmorangie, Scots Gaelic for ‘Glen of Tranquillity’, perfectly describing its peaceful setting on the banks of the picturesque Dornoch Firth, a vast sea estuary and a worldwide Site of Special Scientific Interest. To raise awareness for the conservation of the Dornoch Firth, Glenmorangie has partnered with the Marine Conservation Society to preserve this precious waterway. It is this unique location that is perfectly celebrated by our latest limited edition: Glenmorangie Dornoch

Nose
Syrupy, dried fruits, honey, sweet, vanilla, cherry blossom, red apples, hint of wood chips in the back and toffee. Lots of ripe fruits, dark chocolate, citrus, gets more beautiful and richer with time…

Palate
Sweet, black pepper, fruits, ginger, lemon, creamy, honey, vanilla, raisin, dried fruits, Turkish delight, orange, toffee, nectarines, chocolate

Finish
Medium length, sweet and a hint of cinnamon dryness, some clove and citrus

Score
7,5 out of 10, there is a wood note that runs through it all, but not interfering with the rest and giving it a lovely extra touch to it. Want to read more on this distillery? Have a look at this WhiskySpeller article about it!
